Since the automation of the computer, typefaces are being implemented more and more on the digital screen surface. Until a few years back typefaces were very static when you wrote something on a digital screen. Software and hardware have become cheaper and cheaper. Nowadays everyone can use good quality typefaces. So where do I position myself as a designer? Technology combined with old crafts creates opportunities for the designers and typefaces designers. They can use new mediums and tools to design letters as forms, as an extra layer on top of the concept. So I thought, why not make a typeface that’s not always the same?
It would be interesting when I, as a designer, designed the parameters or the handle bars of the so called (generative) typeface and that the end user can control the final form when using the typeface. I designed an app where users can try out the generative typeface. When starting the app there would be a little guide to help you. After that the anatomy of letters would appear. When the users press on the screen the dots disappear and then the lines would connect after the user draws on the screen. After 27 letters the users gets an overview and the possibility to save the font.
